I'm back on my soft pastel phase. God how I love this medium! All of the pieces you see here have been done with a range of brands and all done on velour paper - the best thing ever. Its fuzzy!


"Fuzzball"


"Sacred Kingfisher"


"Perception"

"Fuzzball" and the kingfisher are both 5"x7", little practice pieces, and "Perception" is 11"x14".

I love both the otter and the kingfisher! The zebra is nice too, but i like the variation in colour in the other two. Always love your style and you never fail to amaze me with your skill to draw fur (and everything else)!

Thank you! I love the way the colours pop with the smaller too, especially the blues of the Kingfisher.

I have just started with pastels and i am far from your mastery. Do you have some favorite brands but not too expensive?

I've built a modest collection over the years, I don't have them with me at the moment so I'll try my best to remember.
A few years back I splurged on a set of 15 Rembrandts, those things are wonderful. They're on the higher end, so pricey, but definitely worth it. Since then I've gathered a few other sets, some by names I can barely find through a Google search, some very common.
But the ones I use the most often are my Rembrandts (thicker, about a cm in diameter), a set of around 12 NuPastels by Prismacolor (sticks, lovely colour and tend to be harder than most pastels) and a set of pastel pencils from a brand that is completely skipping my mind.

Mostly I think its important to start with what you can, and work from there. There are tons of brands out there, just have to experiment. Smiley
